Brian Wilson To Try To Get Europe to SMiLE

From brianwilson.com:

Brian Wilson to Appear at London's Royal Festival Hall Performing his Lost Masterpiece "SMiLE" Live for the First Time

2004 Concert Tour To Include Performances in the U.K. And Europe

Los Angeles, CA -- Brian Wilson, co-founder of the Beach Boys, will return to London's Royal Festival Hall in February 2004. For the first time in his 40-year career, Wilson will perform his mythical unreleased masterpiece, "SMiLE." In addition, the concert will include classic Beach Boys and Brian Wilson favourites as well as selections from his new solo album (details forthcoming).

The concert tour announcement comes on the heels of the 2003 Ivor Novello Awards at which Brian was presented with the Special International Award. Following the Awards ceremony Brian was honoured at a reception hosted by his publishers Rondor Music, celebrating his achievements on the occasion of the Beach Boys 40th Anniversary.

In 2002, Brian Wilson performed sold out concerts to stellar reviews at Festival Hall in January and June. The four January 2002 concerts sold out immediately and when Wilson returned to London later that year to perform at the QueenÕs Jubilee Concert, he sold out another two nights. Among those who attended Brian's Festival Hall performances were Eric Clapton, Roger Daltrey, Elvis Costello, Richard Ashcroft, and others. The gigs were cited as the concerts of the year by most UK critics. Brian Wilson and the Royal Festival Hall were honoured with the prestigious 'Live Event of the Year Award' by Time Out Magazine."

In addition to his 2004 performances, Brian Wilson will be performing three special dates this summer in Massachusettes, New York and New Jersey.

Following are tour dates and ticket information:

Oh man, I hope this means he is going to be releasing SMiLE sometime soon .
